Editor’s note: To maximize protection from the delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, CDC recommends wearing a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
The goal for many people since the COVID-19 pandemic started was “getting back to normal.”
For people fully vaccinated against COVID-19, they can now safely take a step in that direction.
According to new guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, if you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you can resume activities you did before the pandemic.
What does this mean?
Fully vaccinated people don’t need to wear a mask or social distance, unless it’s required by federal, state or local rules and regulations. Workplace guidance and businesses can still require safety precautions.
For those unvaccinated, some activities remain safe, but for others you are recommended to continue masking and practicing social distancing.
If you have not yet received your vaccine, schedule an appointment.
